The "cottages" are studio apartments. The hot tub was the main feature that made us decide to stay there and it was basically a luke-warm oversized bath tub. Upon arrival make sure that you ask about all of their "rules" for staying there. We made the mistake of sigining the agreement upon check-in and didn't receive a copy of all... More

We arrived at Shelly's in the early evening and loved our cottage. We also loved the hot tub, which is very private with a beautiful cottonwood next to it. However, during our first dip in the hot tub, the temperature went down almost ten degrees in an hour. We covered the tub hoping to return later, but a few hours... More

My husband and I have stayed at Shelly's several times. We actually do whatever it takes to save pennies and such year round in order to return. We have been there in nearly every season and my desktop photo on my computer at both work and home have a pictures I have taken there. The grounds are beautiful, the owners... More

My fiancé and I stayed here for a quick get-a-way. If I had to plan the trip all over again, I would have booked a Condo / Cabin in Estes Park. The room was nothing to write home about. Very simple but clean. The hot tub was very refreshing; however, I would have preferred it to be inside the cabin.... More

My husband and I found this property on the Internet. We stay in the Estes Park, Colorado area at least twice a year but usually stay along the Fall River road area. So we decided to try something different. The big sell for us on this property was 5 private hot tubs and no children allowed. Upon arrival we were... More

Shelly's Cottages was a great fit for us as we looked for a close-by, reasonably priced place for a romantic getaway. The cottages don't have phones and our cell phone reception was nil, but the owners have set up a community phone for local use. The proprietors were super friendly and accommodating. We stayed in the Cottonwood cabin, one of... More

We have stayed at Shelly's Cottages 3 times over the past 4 years. We stayed twice during the summer and 1 in the late fall. We have stayed in 3 different cottages and love them all. We read on one review of the bugs. We did see a couple but not any more then any other mountain cabin. The cabins... More

We stayed at Shelly's for three nights. It is located outside the town of Lyons, Colorado. It is about 15 - 20 minutes from Boulder and Estes park. Shelly's had mostly duplex cabins, we stayed in the only single cabin. It had three bedrooms, kitchen, tv, fireplace and hot tub. The kitchen is stocked with plates, silverware, cookware, etc. We...
